Live Tweets of Couple’s #PlaneBreakup Goes Viral; and It’s Wonderful

Something very special happened to Kelly Keegs last night, and it was so wonderful she shared it with the world (via Twitter). We thank Keegs for her contribution to online virality, because the story of the #PlaneBreakup will live on forever.

Or at least for its allotted 15 minutes.

During a flight delay, Keegs noticed a particularly loud couple to her left. Turns out, they were mid-drunken breakup. On a plane. Before it was about to take off:

Keegs proceeded to live-tweet the events that unfolded. There’s too many to tweets to embed, so we’ll offer up a few of our favorites:

For a brief moment, the woman teased the existence of third party:

However, that rather predictable plot line was immediately obliterated by a rather abrupt twist:

Needless to say, Keegs had the best attitude of everyone involved in the #PlaneBreakup:

In a subsequent email to Barstool Sports, Keegs explained that she “thought they were loud and annoying at first” because they “were SO drunk.” But when the woman “started crying loud enough to capture the attention of everyone in the front of the plane,” Keegs began live-tweeting the event as it unfolded.

The Internet truly is beautiful thing. Also terrifying if you’re on the other end of it.
